Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But it can't be 3 through 3, so it would seem like 2 lines on an x,y graph.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok sorry then yes it would be like you have 2 solid lines at x=4 and x=4 with everything in the middle shaded

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wouldn't it be everything outside shaded? since it can't be 3 to 3, it would be everything else, right?
